I just wanted to say thank you for the ability to eat ice cream again! I visited the Ice Cream Shoppe for the first time since I was diagnosed with lactose intolerance, and was more than pleasantly surprised to find out about the low-pasteurization method. Needless to say, I got three scoops!! I wish I didn't live in Pittsburgh, otherwise I would be visiting on a weekly basis. I missed ice cream more than anything, and Hartzler's Dairy gave me the ability to eat it again with no worries! Thank you!

We just started getting Hartzler's milk through Green BEAN Delivery here in Indianapolis, and I wanted to tell you how wonderful it is! My six year old downed a glass, tipped it bottoms up and asked for more, which she has never done in her life!
Not only is it wonderful to be able to give my family a great natural product, I really love that you treat animals well and reuse the glass bottles to help the environment.
It gives me peace of mind all the way around, and I wanted to say thank you for that!
I wanter to take a minute to thank you for your wonderful milk. We are moving to a healthier diet and while we love milk, I thought it would be difficult to transition to whole milk. While at Kazmaier's Grocery Store, I found your milk, saw that it was local and from grass fed cows. It's been years since I've had "real" milk with the cream on top, but we love it! The kids didn't even notice a difference in the taste, and neither did I. They love the glass container...takes me back to the "good old days". Thank you so much for helping me give the very best to my family!
My daughter attends the College of Wooster and shops at Buehler's. She was curious about the milk that came in the glass jugs and when she discovered that your dairy was Wooster based she made the commitment to purchase your milk. She called me with raves about how delicious it was and purchases a gallon every week. On one of her home visits, she was again telling us how good this milk is.
We went on your website and found that the Acme market in Broadview Hts carries Hartzler dairy products. I went there myself, purchased a gallon, and now I'm hooked! It tastes like milk USED to taste when I was a kid...like real milk!!!!!!
The Acme is not real close to home...not far, but not near either...but it is worth the trip to get the milk. A week or so ago, she called me and told me that the Eggnog was out (we had been waiting...if the milk is so good...the eggnog had to be amazing!).
Today, I just returned from Acme in Broadview Hts, opened the jug...and couldn't believe what I was tasting...the very best eggnog in the whole world!!!! Once again, like eggnog used to taste!!!...with all the individual spices used in eggnog able to be tasted and enjoyed...just AMAZING!!!!!
Thanks again for your wonderful product. We are hooked!!!

Wow, [Hartzler's milk] tastes like the milk I used to drink as a kid in Scotland. Didn't realize how tasteless other quality milks were till tasted yousr. Thanks, great quality product.
I just bought your milk for the first time recently and WOW is it good. Thanks for selling such great milk!
I just moved back home to Ohio from Florida, where I oftentimes bought pastures, grass-fed, happy cows' raw milk. Was so happy to go into Whole Foods the other day and saw your glass (NOT plastic) bottles. The milk looked good and tastes delicious! Checked out your website and am happy to see that your cows are pastured, grass fed and happy! Thank you so much for being there for us and them!
I just wanted to say that my kids and I love your milk. It's old fashioned and the right way. A friend of mine got me hooked on it. My family goes through about 3 gallons of milk a week, so your milk is a treat for us! Thank you for your product!
Hello! My husband's family lives in Akron, Ohio and I was always sure to stop in the market to pick up a couple of gallons of your chocolate milk on our trips. I love the stuff, hands down the best (including comparing to snowville and traders point...which are also very delicious.)
I'm so happy to have seen your products on Green Bean Delivery when I started ordering a couple months ago and then I've seen you in Picnic 'n Pantry as well as Hyde Park Biggs. Very glad for your success and am happy for all the new customers who will get to know your fine product! Wishing you further luck and thanks for a wonderful product! P.S. Do you have any stickers for my cars bumper so that I can do some free advertising to reprsent my favorite dairy?
Alicia (Cincinnati, Ohio) 7/23/2012
Hi! I discovered your milk a few months ago and LOVE being able to drink milk again without intestinal problems. Thank you for doing the right thing for your animals and us humans!
I just want to let you know that I discovered your butter at the Mountain People's Co-op in Morgantown, WV and haven't bought butter at the grocery store since. Yours is SO much better, it's like the difference between butter and margarine (ICK!). When I put it in my hot cast iron skillet, it melts without burning. The flavor is fresh, with no hint of the decay that I now taste in store butter and didn't even notice. I wish I lived closer so we could get your milk and ice cream, as well! You're doing good. Thank you.
Deborah (West Virginia) 5/14/12
Thank you for the great milk! In the past few years it has become more important to me to buy things made in the United States and as local as possible. More recently I've been trying to live and eat healthier. It means a great deal to me that you are here in Ohio and not far from me, that you treat your cows so well, that you aren't using artificial hormones, that you put the milk in glass. Yours is the only milk I'll buy now. I'll look for your butter too and you can bet I'll be by soon for some ice cream! I am so happy I found your milk!
I just recently purchased you milk for the first time and I love it! It is the first time I had milk that wasn't ultra pasturized. I love seeing the cream on top. I'm only 34 and have never seen that before. I'm sold on your milk and will continue to purchase it. Thanks for selling a quality natural product. I will definitely tell others about you!
Thanks for caring about your cows and us people!
We love Hartzler's! You're a true blessing. My husband had a terrible time with congestion especially at night. We tracked it down to ultra-pasteurized milk. Since making the switch from very expensive organic milk to Hartzler's his congestion is gone. Thanks for your standards and your exceptional quality. We highly recommend you.
Larry and Linda (Rittman, Ohio) 2/18/12
Hi, I was recently looking for all natural non homogenized milk and I stumbled upon yours at my local Buehlers. I did not think I could find it anywhere around where I live so when I found your milk i was very happy. After tasting your whole milk I will never drink processed homogenized milk again. Thanks for providing natural milk that taste unbelievably good!
I love your milk and the delicious cream on top..its the only milk I'll drink. I used to drive an extra 80 miles to get it..true too.. used to drive to the Raisin Rack in Westerville.. 40 miles from here each way and 80 miles round trip. Now Giant Eagle has it so its only 14 miles round trip to get it. WE ALL MUST SUPPORT THE FAMILY FARM! AND SMALL BUSINESS! which is why I was driving so far and would continue to do so if I have to.
Randy (Groveport, Ohio) 2/13/12
Love your milk! Love that you have not messed around with the organic certification. Love the grass fed component. Love the fact that you have been farming this way for a while. Love the fact that all your milk comes from your place and lastly, the glass bottles! and your price is great!The local store, Cornell's in Huron, recently started carrying it and I sure hope it continues!
I forgot to add that it tastes great!!!! Unlike milk other milk sold in stores, even the organic, your milk has flavor.
Brian (Huron, Ohio) 2/12/2012
It is true we are truly blessed to have access to your products right here in our own back yard. My daughter Cameryn is another story of success when it comes to Hartzler's products. She is six years old and has suffered from severe dairy intolerance since she was an infant. She also has Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis and calcium intake is very important for her. We noticed about 2 years ago that when we came to Hartzler's for ice cream she would actually ask for her own and finish it all, she also accidentally had some chocolate milk we were prepared to pay dearly for when the stomach pain set in but surprisingly nothing! She can happily consume your milk and ice cream with no ill effects to her system. She is your six year old walking billboard always telling everyone to come to Hartzler's cause they have the best ice cream and milk! Thank you for producing such quality products that allow my girl to experience a "normal" childhood! You are our only summer stop when ice cream is in order!
Your eggnog has the most incredible taste. When drinking it I'd swear it came directly from the cow that way! It has a freshness I have never found in any other brand of eggnog – ask my family, every year I buy a few brands in an attempt to find a favorite. I like it thicker like custard eggnog.
This year I also tried Trader Joe's eggnog and though it was not as thick it had a pleasing taste so I bought a few cartons. Every other carton was not as good as the first, some had a stronger spice blend some weaker.
Your eggnog was perfect in every bottle. I will look forward to October for the rest of my life and will never purchase any other brand – I found my ultimate eggnog and it's Hartzler's!
I will be making extra room in my fridge early on so next November so I have some egg nog left for New Years next time around. Guess lots of folks found out how fantastic it tastes this past time, I was glad I rationed what I purchased for Christmas so when my parents visited for New Year's weekend we were able to treat them to the best.
We have just started buying your 2-lb rolls of butter through GreenB.E.A.N. delivery. I just wanted to tell you how much we like it. Thank you!
I just have to say, you stand for everything I look for when it comes to milk and the environment. Low temperature pasteurization, not homogenized, and you reuse (not recycle!) glass bottles. Your milk is the only milk I will drink!
Thank you so much for making the holiday awesome with the most delicious egg nog ever made! I bought a bottle, had one glass, then went back to the store to get 2 more bottles before the store sold out. Next holiday season can't come soon enough!
When the clerk said, "That egg nog in the glass bottles is the best ever!" we went to the dairy department. We decided to try Hartzler Family Dairy's delightful and distinguished brand! It's the only egg nog that doesn't 'burn' going down! I think I'm sold for life! Thanks, You're the best!
I look forward to the holidays every year because I know egg nog is right around the corner :) It's soooooo good!!!
You have the best whole milk that i have ever tasted! I love the cream on the top!
Thanks so much for such a wonderful product.
We just moved so glad you have milk in Gambier Ohio which is close to us.
Carol (Gambier, Ohio) 10/2/11
I have a friend from Rocky River, Ohio who will only drink your milk!!!!!! Anyway, I wanted to say that I so much appreciate your dedication to producing and offering people a natural, healthy product; it means a lot.
Debra (Orrville, Ohio) 8/14/2011
I just tried your whole milk and loved that "the cream rises to the top! It immediately reminded me of when I was a child, and my grandmother's milk deliveryman would arrive with milk in glass bottles with a paper stopper. It was delicious, and yours is just like the milk I remember. :)
Lately I've been getting the creeps thinking about all of the things that are added to milk or given to the cows. Factory farming is endangering humans, I think. You are doing the right thing.
I also wanted to let you know what I do with your eggnog at Christmas time.
I have a KitchenAid mixer, and have the ice cream-maker bowl attachment. I simply pour in your eggnog "as is" and make ice cream out of it! After all, the basic ingredients for ice cream are the same as the ingredients for eggnog, really. The eggnog makes a delicious ice cream just by itself, because it's so thick, and you can add mix-ins, such as chocolate chips.
I’ve known about Hartzler Dairy milk since my daughter was just one year old. She didn’t drink cow’s milk very readily, and she didn’t sleep through the night. My brother had told that when his son was the same age and also not drinking milk or sleeping all night, they started giving him Hartzler Dairy milk, and overnight, he was a new kid. He loved the milk and slept much better and seemed to even be less fussy overall (in hindsight, it was probably because non-homogenized milk is more easily digested). My brother’s testimonial was convincing, but Hartzler Dairy milk wasn’t available in my grocery store at the time, so I rarely had the chance to make a special trip to get it. A few years passed, and during that time, my sister and her “milk-loving” husband became hooked on Hartzler Dairy milk because of its superior taste, but Hartzler Dairy milk was still very difficult for me to get because it wasn’t at my grocery store. I continued to ask my grocery store to carry it, but in the meantime, I bought standard “organic” milk and continued to research the many benefits of non-homogenized, slow-pasteurized dairy products. So, when I saw Hartzler Dairy bottles in our organic dairy case a few weeks ago, I practically started jumping up and down in the aisle.
I brought home the Hartzler Dairy milk, not knowing what response I would get from my two daughters (who both adamantly refused to drink plain milk, and would only drink “vanilla” milk instead). When my 4-year old tried it for the first time (after gulping down the entire glassful), she said, “Mmmmm. Mommy, can I please have more of that yummy milk???” I hadn’t even told her that it was a different kind of milk. She noticed that Hartzler Dairy milk tasted better on her very own!
Since then, she has continued to ask for the “yummy” milk, even saying, “don’t add any vanilla to it. I just want the yummy milk plain. You can only add vanilla to milk that comes out of the cartons.” My 2-year old has also been drinking the Hartzler Dairy milk with enthusiasm. I haven’t put vanilla in their milk since I switched to Hartzler Dairy milk, and to this day, my older daughter still refers to Hartzler Dairy milk as the “yummy milk.”
I will be making my own yogurt and ice cream with the Hartzler Dairy milk, as well.
Who knew that I could be so excited about something as simple as milk?
Dianne (North Canton, Ohio) 5/13/11
Your milk is the only milk i drink. It is the only milk that doesnt upset my stomach. I absolutely love it. Thank you so much for your time and your great product. It's nice to have milk I can drink. All my best.
We are a huge fan of your current products. Side Note: My son LOVES egg nog and we had Hartzler egg nog for the first time in 2010. It is now his favorite. Really once you try it, you'll never go back to any other brand! I think he would have drank a whole bottle in one sitting if I would have let him. I had to limit him to one bottle a week.
I get your milk from Heinens and I just wanted to tell you that I love the Whole Milk! I have missed buying milk in the old glass bottles and then to scoop the cream off the top and eat it--so delicious!
Richard (Lorain, Ohio) 3/1/11
We LOVE your milk and get it at the Kent Co-op. We hadn't been drinking milk for years and we have learned to love the taste again -- great hot chocolate! We're 66 and 72 and we love your 2% milk with the cream on top. I'll look for the butter and ice cream now.
Sandy and Henry (Kent, Ohio) 2/26/11
Just want to tell you how happy I am that I found your milk at Buehler's in Medina. It tastes so great and like milk is supposed to taste! I remember this taste from my childhood and have not found it anywhere else that I have bought milk. Thank you for your natural production of milk and your concern for our well-being and our eco-system.
Barbara (Medina, Ohio) 1/25/11
Loved your Egg Nog this Holiday Season! Finished it off in my coffee, yummy.
Just wanted to say how great your milk is! In fact we had a boyscout den meeting at our house and one of their requirements was to learn about milk... We took that opportunity to share the wonderful milk that we enjoy by buying Hartzlers! We talked about the unique pasteurization process, the fact that is local, the jar can be recycled and the milk is hormone free! We also let everyone taste the BEST chocolate milk ever made :)! Everyone really enjoyed it! Thanks again for a great product!
Bezek Family 1/11/11
My Grandmother and sister live in West Virginia and I took them some eggnog for Christmas and now they want to try your milk. In her 76 years, yours is the best eggnog my Grama has ever had =)
I will add that some eggnogs have a tendency to upset her stomach a little but she had absolutely no trouble with yours, in addition to it being the tastiest.
My 13-year old sister and I are egg nog fanatics! Come every November we seldom have anything less than 2 bottles/cartons of egg nog in the refrigerator at any time and have been relentlessly-searching for that perfect egg nog. After what seems likes dozens of brands and flavors, this year, we found it! Hartzler egg nog has proudly become "ours". The texture, color, incredible creaminess, and the bottle are irresistable! Thanks for the obvious care and committment you give to your milk and egg nog and to your customers. Looking forward to trying your other products too!
I get your eggnog and milk and whatever else I can get with the Hartzler name on it from Giant Eagle. I love your products. It reminds me when the milkman use to come and deliver the milk in the glass bottles. Please keep just doing what you are doing because it all tastes so good.
My Uncle bought some of your Egg Nog by accident and brought it for or Christmas celebration. I have to say this is the best I have ever tasted. It was smooth and creamy but not too thick. Wonderful! I hope next year I can talk him into bringing it on purpose. Thank you.
I just love your products! I am a whole milk and chocolate milk drinker and think they are just great! I love the full fat! I also like that you use low temperature pasteurization because it is easier to digest. Milk that is ultra-pasteurized tastes like chalk and water compared to your milk! Thank you!
Andrew (Upper Arlington, Ohio) 12/28/10
I couldn't believe how much cream was on top of the 2% milk. Our family just started buying it from the Dorothy Lane Market store and we love it! I gave my 2 year old daughter some of the chocolate milk and then asked her if I could try it and she would tell me "Mine Mommy Mine." I couldn't get it away from her.
Ashley (Dayton, Ohio) 12/24/10
I have been driving to Ashland Buehler's to buy your milk and it is just so good. We love your products. The last time I was in Buehler's I saw your eggnog and knew if it was from Hartzler's that it'd be great. I consider myself an eggnog aficionado, as I could drink eggnog all year round, and let me just say that yours by far is the best that I have ever had! I even want to come down and make a special trip to your ice cream shoppe in Wooster! Thanks for your wonderful products.
Anita (Butler, Ohio) 12/21/10
I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful products. I was urged by one of the folks at Motts Bulk Food store east of Louisville Ohio to try your butter for cooking and baking. I had used several different kinds of butter, and while yours was a bit more expensive.. I am now totally sold on your brands. . I was doing a lot of holiday baking and needed about 2 pounds of butter, your roll did the trick. . I can taste the difference in my cookies and other baked goods. Thank you again for keeping it real and natural.
William (Louisville, Ohio) 12/11/10
I just wanted to thank you for a superior product. I make my own kefir and I have never had the grains thrive like they have while using your milk. The taste is unparalleled and now I know there is a safe, nutritious alternative for when I begin to wean my daughter from breast milk. I love your butter too! It's the quality of butter Julia Child would use! I've been telling all my friends to get your milk, especially those with children. Did you know that a girl's lifetime risk of breast cancer is cut in half if she consumes sufficient amounts of CLA before puberty? I feel good knowing that your milk and butter provide that nutrient to my daughter. Thanks again.
This is the most delicious milk I have ever had the pleasure of drinking! Unless I buy my own cow, I will be a customer for life!
Our family recently moved to Wooster, and I purchased your whole milk for the first time. We absolutely love it. We are very concerned about the added hormones in dairy products, especially for our son who is only 1 year and just starting to eat dairy products, so I just wanted to say Thanks!
Cyndi (Wooster, Ohio)
I was so excited to finally find milk in glass jugs during my last trip to Giant Eagle in Columbus. Your milk is so worth the few extra dollars. I am pleased to be able to buy milk that is healthier and better for the environment. Please do not stop providing Columbus with this wonderful product. After only one jug of your milk, I am hooked for life! Thank you!
Veronica (Columbus, Ohio)
So I decided about a month ago to purchase your white milk while I was shopping at Heinen’s Rocky River. It has a creamy taste…just what it looks like. So, this past Sunday I thought I would try the chocolate milk. It tastes even better than you white milk, mmmmmmmm so creamy and chocolaty. My daughter walked in the kitchen and had to try it also. She said, “Mom you better hide it from Paul (my husband) or he will drink the whole bottle!” Well, I am not going to tell you if I hid it from view in the refrigerator but I will tell you it is a real treat. You have delicious milk and the fact that it is wholesome and a local farm prompts me to continue purchasing your “dreamy” milk.
Sheila (Rocky River, Ohio)
I love Hartzler’s Ice Cream! I usually don’t eat dairy products because I’m lactose intolerant, but I eat Hartzler’s because it doesn’t bother me. It’s absolutely deliciously wonderful!
My sister, husband, and I all thought we had lactose allergies until we used your products!
I’m drinking milk again thanks to you. I used to get severe intestinal upset. We get our milk at Nature’s Bin in Lakewood. I just wanted to thank you for all of your hard work. It is good to drink milk again.
For years now my body has reacted strongly to milk products and I came to a point where I just wouldn’t consume them. I visited my daughter in Ohio and thought I would experiment with Hartzler Milk and drank it for five days with absolutely no side effects. I would recommend it to anyone who is lactose intolerant.
Thanks for your excellent milk. I purchased whole milk from Kreiger's in Cuyahoga Falls. It stood out from the rest with its glass bottle and the local identification. It's unbelievably better than what I was drinking before!
Brian (Stow, Ohio)
I buy your milk from Brunswick's Buehler's. I was down to skim milk and still having gas problems (even with horizon and other organics) when I saw your milk. My mother used to give us nonhomogenzed /non-pasteurized milk when we were little....so i figured what the heck Ill try your milk...which I did. Well my mom spots it in my fridge and 1)wants to know where I got it 2)and why am I buying skim I should be buying whole. Figured what the heck, I have never liked whole milk, but why not try it ? It's better for you anyway. I am drinking whole milk for the first time in my life. My grandson constantly asks for the creamy milk. He notices the difference AND its a better price than the other organics...AND its local!! WHOO HOO. Seriously, if you guys EVER start to home deliver sign me up.!! Thank you for a wonderful product.
Nancy (Brunswick, Ohio)
I tried your milk and it taste like back in Europe (Slovakia). I love that the cream rises to the top. I have been here for 8 years already and couldn't find milk like that and now I finally did. I would love to try butter also because i miss butter from back home. Everything here is much different. Thank you.
Daniel (Amherst, Ohio)
I was thrilled to find your website today. I can't believe I have lived so near to your fabulous dairy all my life, but was not familiar with it. I have told my children so often of the wonderful cream top high butterfat milk in glass bottles that our milkman delivered to my home when I was young. Because of YOU, I can now show them what a fabulous difference there is in the taste of quality dairy products.
In reading your family member stories I was reminded of my own father. How I wish he was still alive and could talk to your dad. My father had a perpetual "green thumb". He loved the land and was raised on a farm. In addition to the wonderful hothouse tomato crops he nurtured, we had a huge family garden and a vegetable stand out front to keep us busy every spring and summer. It was a wonderful, healthy way to be raised! I can't tell you how happy it made me to see that such men and such families still exist in our fast-food chemical infested world. I pray your family business continues to prosper and grow. God Bless you!
Norma (Columbia Station, Ohio)
I just want to say thanks for offering such a wonderful product. I have been using one of the organic "ultra pasteurized" products but now will switch to Hartzler, which I can purchase at Heinen's. I like shopping locally, and I like the fact that many of the enzymes are preserved in your milk. And most important to me: It's a healthy choice and you treat your cows humanely. 'nuff said!
I wanted to tell you how much I love Hartzler Dairy Milk! It's so fresh and has great taste compared to any other milk I have tried before! I refuse to buy milk from cows treated hormones (I can tell the difference in my body!), and I think it's important to support local farmers.
I just wanted to say thank you for your delicious milk!! I am not a milk drinker, but last week while shopping at Heinen's I saw the old-fashioned glass milk bottle and that was truly what made me give it a try. My husband and I both absolutely loved it!! We are going to spread the word to our children for our grandchildren - they will be amazed that this is what milk is supposed to taste like!!
I tried your milk and it tasted like what I use to enjoy in Europe (Slovakia). I love that the cream rises to the top. I have been here for 8 years already and couldn't find milk like that and now I finally have. I would love to try butter also because I miss butter from back home. Everything here is much different. Thank you.
Daniel (Amherst, Ohio)
My oldest son is 12 and he has never been able to drink cows milk. We started raising dairy goats 11 years ago so that he could have milk. One winter we did not have sufficient milk saved so we tried Hartzer's milk. And he had no problem with it. Hatzler milk has been a blessing to our family when our milk production is low, because dairy is an important part of our dietary requirements.
I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate that you do not homogenize your milk and that you use the glass bottles! I am 88 years old and I loved getting our milk from the milkman with the cream on top. In the winter it would freeze and stick to the cap and I am just so thankful that you continue to leave your milk non-homogenized. Plus, it is so much healthier!
Carol (Cleveland Heights, Ohio)
I was so surprised when I opened a bottle of your whole milk...I thought the bottle was just a marketing gimmick ...so I open and started to pour...nothing...I thought there must be an inner seal...no it was CREAM!!!!
You don't know how happy you made an old lady...this is what I've been telling my son about for years...milk the way I knew it as a child! You have a customer for life.
I've been buying your milk since Acme in North Canton started carrying it. I've also been enjoying your eggnog every year. It's better than my grandmother's!!!!! Thank you so much for making this wonderful, smooth, creamy product every holiday season! Nobody does it better than you!
Bonnie (North Canton, Ohio)
I was visiting my daughter in Cleveland, OH, a couple of weeks ago, and she had your 2 lb. butter. Never have I had such divine, delicious, perfect butter in my life. Eating your butter on fresh baked bread, potatoes, and more fresh baked bread was one of the major highlights of my visit to Ohio. I am so thankful that my daughter and her family are able to have access to your butter. Thank You!!!!!
Just a thank you... I'm on my 3rd bottle of 2% milk and I have to say it is amazing. I switched because I'm trying to eat healthier cutting our factory farm meats, eggs and milk, along with all the antibiotics and pesticides. My first bottle of Hartzler's milk and I was blown away...it went fast. Also thank you for the glass bottle we can return. That's the way things should be to help reduce and recycle-you get it-anyhow, thanks again. Consider me a lifer with your product! I will drink it as long as its around.
Just wanted to let you know, my family loves your milk!!! It is worth the money for a quality product. I drive a 1/2 hour to the store just to buy it. I cringe at the thought of drinking any other. Many Blessings.
Hi and Happy New Year. I am 70 years old and this past week I purchased for the first time a bottle of your holiday eggnog. I will tell you that it was the finest eggnog I have ever drank in my 70 years.Thanks!
Danny (Toledo, Ohio)
Today I had something that reminded me of being a kid, and that is your milk. My wife's mother had some and shared it with us. I tell you what, your milk is the best! I am a big milk drinker and having yours reminded me of when my dad used to get milk from his friend's farm. The glass bottle is just awesome, the taste is just awesome. It was a real treat, sadly the nearest place I can tell that has it is still a fair drive away. I just wanted to thank you for putting out such a great product and keep up the great work and you can bet, the next time I am able to get some of that milk I am going to fill our fridge with it! Thanks again.
Oh my goodness! Your chocolate milk is to die for! :) And I enjoyed a delicious dish of ice cream. Keep up the good work and please keep trucking your products over to the Canton area.
J.J. (Canton, Ohio)
I have always had lactose issues and am asthmatic and would have issues when drinking milk. I really enjoy milk and so I tried yours and was surprised when I didn't have any problems. Then, I read your website and the rest of your testimonials and now know that maybe it was because of the milk I was drinking before! Thanks so much for producing such a quality product.
Debbie (Kent, Ohio)
I recently stumbled upon your milk at our Nemenz IGA in Struthers Ohio when I was going out to get a few necessities. The glass bottle caught my eyes, thought they were some plastic bottle marketing ploy until I tapped it with my finger. I was immediately transported back 45 years when I saw the cream line, thought I was hallucinating!!!!!!! I then read your labeling and still could not believe what I was seeing. I can still remember the milk delivered on the porch and actually having to shake the bottle. The cold temperatures provided a welcome frozen treat. The cost is a bit more but well worth it and the return deposit is great for the environment!!! There is absolutely positively NO COMPARISON to that mundane white stuff in those polypropylene bottles, the sound of that word in conjunction with ‘Milk’ makes one shudder. The taste of your milk is like nothing I’ve had in 45 years, I’m actually sitting here looking at, as well as drinking a glass of your liquid gold as I’m typing this. You have gained a new loyal customer, GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND THANKS FOR THE LONG AWAITED TREAT!!!!!!!!
Anthony (Portland Ohio)
I am very pleased with it as it is so much better tasting than commercial diaries. I will be purchasing Hartzler Dairy products on a regular basis as I can taste the quality. Plus one cannot put a price on all natural products.
Once again, your products are top quality. I also have had your chocolate milk and love it .
I never liked milk before I drank Hartzler's. I grew up in California then moved to Oklahoma City and used to get yelled at as a child for not drinking my milk at the table. Now I'm 38 and my family can’t belief that I am drinking what I use to call 'cow pus'

Just wanted to say that I have started buying your milk at Whitehouse Fruit Farm in Canfield, and am very pleased with it. I began buying your brand because it is the only milk we could find that is still packaged in glass bottles. But I also love that it’s non-homogenized, letting the cream separate out. My husband grew up on a small farm and says your milk reminds him of when he was young.

Just wanted to let you know that my husband and I feel your eggnog is the best we have ever had and we love eggnog!
We have tried many brands, but none compares to yours.
Plus, I love the milk bottle. Takes me back to when I was a little girl
I am writing to tell you how much we love drinking your milk. We recently moved to Brecksville, OH, Where we do our grocery shopping at a Heinen’s store. When I saw your glass containers of milk, I decided to guy some. We are hooked! We So appreciate all of the great environmental impacts your milk has on this community: healthy cows, locally raised milk, not homogenized, reusable containers…we are committed to buying Hartzler milk (and roll butter). Thank you so much for your dedication to this community.

It's been a year now since my wife first discovered your cream-top milk and roll butter at Williams IGA in Vienna, Ohio. I'm retired and will be 67 in May, and can't begin to count the times I've told the story about "the good old days" when fresh, whole milk was delivered to our porch by the milkman; and, how in the winter, it would sometimes freeze and push the cardboard cap off the glass bottle creating a "creamsicle" that my mother would let me enjoy. I can remember when the milkman had a horse drawn wagon, and my mother would give me two pieces of the lump sugar she used in her coffee to give his horse.
After home delivery was discontinued, we bought our milk, butter, ice cream, and other items at the neighborhood store two and a half blocks from home. While attending high school, I worked after school and during the summer I worked as a roofer's helper, and would stop by the nearest store by the job site and buy a quart to wash the slate dust taste out of my mouth.
I've bored friends, family, and grandkids for years with the stories of "skyscraper" ice cream cones, Klondikes, milk, buttermilk, milkshakes, butter, chip-chopped ham, and all the good things I was able to enjoy "back when I was a kid." I've missed the traditional dairy products now that the dairy I use to buy from is gone.
My wife spotted the Hartzler Dairy glass, cream-top milk bottle and couldn't wait to bring it home for me. We have become exclusive and avid consumers of your product - no other milk or butter will do (and we recommend it to everyone!). We are so glad to be able to enjoy your milk and butter!

We visited Cleveland yesterday and stopped at Whole Foods, then happened to find your milk. We purchased whole milk to see how "Authentic" your milk was.
Oh my gosh!! It was exactly as same as I used to drink in JAPAN. Like you mentioned on a website, we used to have milk delivered at the door from the neighbor's farm and it tasted just like that. I am glad that I could tell my children how milk supposed to taste like.
Thank you for providing us good milk!

Last week I tried your milk for the first time. I purchased it from Whole foods in Dublin, Ohio. I bought the Chocolate milk and it was wonderful. My 4 year old daughter laid claims to it and when she saw some was missing she said "Who has been drinking all my milk?" We were in trouble. This weekend we came to Mt. Eaton to camp and I started searching out the milk because the label said Wooster on it. Well we found the store and had ice cream. We all loved the ice cream. My girls both got the "Trip to the Dentist" which was later described by my 4 year old as "it was yummier than all the rest". We also had to get more chocolate milk. Just thought I would drop you line and tell you we really enjoyed your products.
Stacey (Piketon, Ohio)
No questions, just wanted to say Thank You for providing us folks out here with the best Milk in the whole world. I drive 35 miles just to buy your milk. God Bless you and yours.
I have been buying your milk for quite awhile and I love it
Nina (Cleveland, Ohio)
I just want to tell you how pleased I am with your milk. It is the way milk should be. I am 41, and this is the way it was when I was young with the milk man coming to our house. I love your eggnog also. Thank you and keep up the great work.
I just recently came back from my old stomping grounds in Geauga County, Ohio after attending my Uncle's funeral. While I was up there, my friend introduced me to your chocolate milk and eggnog. I have to admit, it was the best chocolate milk and eggnog I have ever tasted. I was able to bring back one gallon of chocolate milk and 1/2 gallon of eggnog to share with my family and friends. Unfortunately, it didn't go far but, the memories will last for quite a while. Thank you so much for such a fine product.
Joe (Savannah, Georgia)
Just wanted to let you know that we really enjoy the quality and flavor of your milk.
Sarah (Mansfield, Ohio)
You have the best milk I have tasted since I was a little girl (I am 60 years old)!
Not long ago I purchased our first bottle of Hartzler Fat Free Milk at Whole Foods in Dublin. I was attracted by the glass bottle. Glass keeps the milk so much colder than cartons.
The next time I accidentally bought your whole milk, instead of low fat. Oh my gosh, it tastes so delicious! It reminds me of the milk we had in elementary school (again, in little glass bottles). I have to keep myself from drinking too much of it! I have also been telling other people about it.
I also bought the chocolate milk -- too good! (We like the fat free milk, too, although I may have become addicted to your whole milk.)
Then I read the recent edition of RFD News that had the story of your farm. For me, that information made your milk even better. Thank you so much for farming the way that you do and for providing such a great food product. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Your website is great, too. I enjoyed reading about Mr. Hartzler.
We recently moved to Ostrander from Columbus, but we might have to drive up to Wooster this spring to have some ice cream.
May God continue to bless you.
I had to let you know how much I LOVED your eggnog!!.I bought about 6 bottles altogether at Heinen's in Rocky River. It's all gone now...
I have tried many brands of eggnog and yours is the BEST!! When it becomes ice cream season again, my husband and I will take a drive to your Ice Cream Shoppe-what's an hour when good food is involved! Thanks
No questions, just a thank you for great products.
I was just checking out your website, and wanted to drop a line and say your milk is the best- I've been buying it from Nature's Bin in Lakewood, OH for quite some time, and the quality is just miles above your average supermarket milk. Keep up the good work.
I purchased my first 1/2 gallon of your whole milk at Acme #1 in Akron. I love it and have purchased my 2nd 1/2 gallon.
PS I have read Dad's story -- thank you for taking the risk to go back to the earth as God intended and being better than organic !!
We've been purchasing your milk through Buehler's in Delaware, Oh, and are happy to get it. Since the government over-regulated and destroyed the small dairy farmer that once surrounded us here in the country in Ostrander, you are the only reasonably convenient source for milk done right that isn't ultra pasteurized. Thank you for that. We will remain loyal customers.
Dean (Ostrander, Ohio)
Just wanted to write and say we love your milk, ice cream and butter.
Heather (Elyria, Ohio)
Hello! I just purchased my first gallon of your milk at Winona Lake, IN. It is being talked about around town. 2 people have mentioned it to me in the last 2 days, so I decided to try it. I hope that's good news to you....word is spreading here. :)
For the last month, my daughter's 2nd grade class has been studying good nutrition. Apparently, with Ohio's obesity epidemic, schools are making a concerted effort to teach children about good eating habits.
Recently, my daughter was wondering why we drink your milk as opposed to another dairy's. As I was explaining the reasons why drinking milk from local, grass-fed, non-antibiotic treated cows was preferable, it dawned on me that her class could benefit from knowing more about your dairy. Her teacher agreed and in a few weeks, I plan on giving the students a mini talk about organic foods and letting them sample your milk. I can't wait to see their reaction when they try your milk --- my daughters' friends always love it and ask where their mom's can buy it.
I know my family is hooked on your chocolate milk. It's delicious.
Sally (Concord, Ohio)
I am just writing to tell you how much I enjoyed tasting your milk today. Normally, I'm not one to write to let someone know how much I love their product, but this milk blew me away. I have only had normal grocery store milk up until today, because I didn't think there was a difference. I had heard about "natural" milk (on NPR radio I think) and decided to try some today. The Whole Foods in Dublin, OH had your products and I picked up a bottle of 2%. Man was I surprised! The taste and texture is so delicious and unique that I will probably not buy big chain milk again.
I think if more people just had a chance to taste the milk that you produce, they would also be amazed at what they have been missing out on their whole lives. Keep up the great work, and I look forward to spreading the word about your milk to my friends.
My husband introduced me to Hartzler Dairy when we visited the Wayne County Fair early in our "courtship"....it only took one cone to win me over! And yes, I kept him too....
We visit the shoppe regularly, but also purchase your milk at local stores near us (Riverbank Market, Buehler's). We've been happily surprised to find Hartlzer milk on recent visits to the West Side Market in Cleveland, and at the Village Bakery in Athens, Ohio. We absolutely love the milk. It tastes unlike anything I've had before, and I can't make myself try anything else at this point. The glass bottles keep the milk SO cold, and the taste is amazing.
We wish you happy cows, plentiful crops and all of the sunshine you need to keep your dairy healthy and productive! You've got at least two dedicated fans! Keep up the good work!
Brad and Becky (New Franklin, Ohio)
I just wanted to tell you guys that I saw your glass bottle milk the other day and bought one. Milk like I remember it. The best ever! I'm switching permanently!
Just had your chocolate milk and Heifer Trail ice cream at WCRF where I'm a volunteer for SHARE 2010. This is the first year I've been able to have some because it's usually gone by the time I get there. The chocolate milk is fabulous (I'll never buy any other brand again), and fortunately the ice cream was way better than its name.
Thanks again for "sharing" with WCRF - now you've got a new customer!
Carole (Euclid, Ohio)
I have tasted your milk sold at Nature's Bin in Lakewood Ohio and it is fantastic, so creamy.
My family and I are understanding SO many things about how the Lord intended us to eat, drink and enjoy this earth and we are trying SO hard to live out the things He has shown us, which led us to you: ) Thanks for a great product!
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your milk. I get it at Mrs. B’s in Mansfield or Comfrey Corner.
I just wanted to drop a line to say thank you. I had reached a point where I didn't think good milk still existed. I was born in England and lived there in my early years, raised on hand delivered daily whole milk, and It had been so long since I had a real glass of it. Until, I spied your full bottles at Nature's Bin in Lakewood. Since then I am able to go get my weekly gallon, and enjoy milk, they way it is supposed to be, on a daily basis. Thank you for your hard work, and for putting real milk on the shelves for those who need it, in a glass bottle no less!! keep up the good work.
Craig (Cleveland, Ohio)
I love the glass bottles! I reuse them to store juice, milk, etc. Keeps it so much fresher than plastic.
Carol (Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio)
I became familiar with your milk through a friend who lives in Wooster. He brought us some of your chocolate milk and eggnog and I have since bought the skim milk, 2%, and butter in Warsaw. Every product is incredible! The eggnog is heaven in a bottle.
Patti (Fort Wayne, Indiana)
I have had severe asthma and allergies and would always have to limit my milk intake. After I would drink a glass of milk I would normally have to do breathing treatments to recover. But not with Hartzler's! Now I can chug a glass without any side effects! Thanks!
Robin (Lisbon, Ohio)
I just drove over to Avon to buy this seasons 1st bottles of Hartzler's Egg Nog from Heinen's. Yum!!!! Christmas is coming soon and I get to have your fantastic Egg Nog for another few months. It is the best eggnog ever! Thank you,
Mark (Elyria, Ohio)

"..The Cream Rises to the top"
Whether you drink it straight from the bottle (we won't tell your mom), or from a favorite glass, there's one thing you need to do first: SHAKE BEFORE DRINKING! That's because our milk is all natural and the cream rises to the top -- that's what makes our milk healthier and tastier than most!
